Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa of CBS get the call when the Seahawks play at home against the 49ers in Week 2. Kickoff is at 1:05 PT. I'll track which crews work specific games within the division to see how the networks perceive national interest.

CBS and Fox each have seven crews. The higher-ranked crews draw more attractive assignments such as Super Bowls, playoff games and marquee matchups.

The Raiders were consistently on TV in my local market when I was growing up. That meant tuning in Bill King on the radio at the expense of the national broadcast. Perhaps you do the equivalent for whatever team you follow. Sometimes it depends on which TV broadcast team is working the game, or how well your favorite team is faring that day.

Either way, here's a heads-up on the Fox crews working NFC West games:

  • Ron Pitts, Tony Boselli and Charissa Thompson are working the Seahawks-Bills game.
  • Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa are working the Rams-Eagles game.
  • Sam Rosen, Tim Ryan and Chris Myers are working the Cardinals-49ers game.

I wind up watching games in person and then re-watching on video without as much regard for the audio. Which broadcast teams do you like? Which ones really do their homework?
